COPAS Learning

When our courses are published and open for registration you will find course registration links in the Education menu under COPAS CEE Store and under the Events Menu. Please visit those links to purchase courses. You can also see projected classes in the Events calendar.


Coming Soon!

The need for self-study courses becomes increasingly more important as tightening budgets restrict travel and increase work hours. We have a number of self-study modules in development to allow you to take our courses at your own steady pace, from the comfort of your desk, kitchen table, sofa, or local coffee shop. Our COPAS Learning platform will provide easy access to the self-study courses and each course will be available to participants for a full year after individual registration. You will be able to complete courses at your own speed and receive your certificate automatically upon completion of the course modules.

As soon as the self-study option is available, notifications will be posted on the site, and on our COPAS social media accounts - look for an additional link in the education menu at that time!
